Barnes & Noble Introduces the Newest Samsung Galaxy Tab S2 NOOK 8-Inch Tablet
The US book retailer Barnes & Noble today announced the introduction of a new Samsung-built 8″ tablet. The company has moved away from building its own hardware and now letting Samsung do the heavy lifting. Samsung doesn’t mind, it launches new tablets and smartphones on a seemingly daily basis, who can keep up?
The announcement is below and I would point out the part about the NOOK Newsstand. B&N is giving away three eBooks and three magazines with the $400 tablet, but I remain skeptical about the retailers commitment to digital publishing. (The last I heard from the retailer they were made at TNM for calling into question their claim in a press release that they were a major platform. They weren’t, and aren’t, though I probably should have let it go and not added the revision.)
